— We might be looking at our first position battle other than kicker if Armon Binns keeps practicing like he's been doing since OTA started.

— Armon Binns finished 2012 as Miami's starting slot and took away reps from Brandon Gibson during Wednesday's practice.

— Dustin Keller did not work with the team today. Michael Egnew and Charles Clay shared the tight end work. Clearly, Clay struggled.

— "As always we're looking for any way, any opportunity to improve your football team," Philbin said when asked about Vonta Leach visit.

— Philbin said fullback is not a easy position to evaluate during OTAs without pads.

— Philbin said his defensive schemes will be evolving. "We've added some things we've tested out, experimented with."

— "Tough guy. That's what I remember most," Philbin said of Vonta Leach.

— "He's a good athlete. We liked him coming out of college...He's a young developing player," Philbin said of Evan Rodriguez.

— "Lead by example, be unselfish, care about his teammates," Philbin said of expectations for Mike Wallace.

— Joe Philbin said Armon Binns is playing fast and "he makes the plays that are there."

— Joe Philbin said Armon Binns has been developing as a slot WR because the coaches want "a bigger target in there."

— Philbin commended De'Andre Presley for the practice sealing interception he made on Ryan Tannehill's come-from-behind series.

— The Dolphins' top performers during OTA today are. 1. Armon Binns (playmaker) 2. Brent Grimes (clutch end zone INT). 3. Koa Misi (INT on RT)

— The one thing I have noticed is the defense pulled down more catchable balls this offseason. The linebackers are clutch with their hands.

— The interception Koa Misi pulled down would have been a challenge for a receiver considering how low the ball was thrown. No problem for 55.

— And by far the best daily camp battle is Mike Wallace vs. Brent Grimes. They both have speed and it is an even matchup.

— I've concluded part of the reason Ryan Tannehill clearly favors Hartline is because Wallace faces Grimes, and no game planning YET.

— But Brian Hartline IS the most consistent offensive player on the team IMO. He's clutch every day, and I can't remember a drop.
